Honouring Our People: Breaking the Silence Book Launch
at Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre, 6688 Southoaks, Burnaby
Saturday, June 4th, 2:00 pm
On three days in September 2009, families, friends, and survivors came together for the Honouring Our People: Stories of the Internment conference in Burnaby, BC. The conference paid tribute to the Japanese Canadians who experienced racism, alienation, betrayal, restrictions, uprooting and loss during and after WWII. We also acknowledged the resilience and perseverance shown by Japanese Canadians who not only endured, but often prospered after the war. We created dialogue between generations and gave descendants of survivors the opportunity to learn more about their family’s history. With our book, Honouring Our People: Breaking the Silence, we are hoping to continue the opportunity for dialogue and learning by sharing some of the stories from the conference.
